Moments ago, the iconic PWI released its top 10 of its annual rankings for pro wrestling superstars around the world.

This year's list was headed by Seth "Freakin" Rollins who did a great performance and carried WWE's Monday Night Raw on his back for more than a year, in addition, he was the first ever to capture the WWE World Heavyweight championship.

Rollins managed to jump 16 places as he was 17th on the list last year.

Roman Reigns came second instead of topping the last in 2022. Reigns broke the 1000+ day record to become the longest-reigning Universal WWE title.

Jon Moxley is the third one on the list instead of last year's 16 place. Moxley captured the AEW International title and delivered various tough matches across various promotions, mainly with AEW.

He also carried his Blackpool Combat Club in the absence of its leader Bryan Danielson.

With the naming of Rollins, Reigns, and Moxley the top 3 of the list, The Shield once again dominated the pro wrestling scene.

Gunther captured fourth place due to his impressive performance with the WWE Intercontinental title and delivering some of the highest-ranked matches at WWE.

Last year, Gunther was 91st on the list.

AAA Mega Champion Hijo Del Vikingo supported his place among the top 10 for the second year in a row, in addition to improving his place to 5th instead of 8th.

The current AEW World Champion MJF entered the top 10 list for the first time. The 23-year-old star made 2 five-star matches and main-evented various AEW PPVs, including Webley's All In.

Former IWGP champion Kazuchika Okada remained in the Top 10 list but in 7th place instead of last year's 2nd.

The former AEW International Superstar Orange Cassidy entered the top 10 for the first time instead of being enlisted as 114 in last year's edition.

Cassidy contributed deeply with AEW through various events, PPVs, and weekly shows, in addition to his appearance at AEW House Rules shows.

The former Impact World Champion Josh Alexander is the 9th on the list due to his great run with the title. Last year, he was the 14th.

WWE top-merch seller Cody Rhodes came 10th instead of last year's 6th place.
